A Pathway to Career Success

A critical component to the Agricultural Education learning model, the Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) program is where learning comes to life. Students with an SAE learn by doing. With help from their agricultural teachers, students develop an SAE project based on one or more SAE categories beginning with a foundational SAE during their first year in an agriculture course.

Immersion SAE

Over time, students will likely identify opportunities to become even more immersed in gaining skills for a career in a certain area of the agricultural industry. Immersion SAEs provide a way to build upon the Foundational SAE and gain direct experience in a selected career path that colleges and employers will value when reviewing applications for entry or employment. The outcome of this progression from a Foundational to an Immersion SAE is an authentic path to college and career readiness.
